Victoria's Electoral Rolls. METROPOLIS & COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 8 May 1914

Victoria's Electoral Rolls. METROPOLIS & COUNTRY. The revision of tho Electoral rolls for tho Victorian Assembly has given some startling results. No less than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists, an achievement which shows, that tho past Ministries wore sadly parsimonious, or that Electoral Officials gave sorry returns for money paid thorn. Politicians may annise themselves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately, or as inaccurately, as their personal interests suggest, but tho average elector looking at the figures finds other matter for serious concern. Tho old roll gave tho country Electorates 363,129 votors, tho Metro politan Constituencies 318,786, that 'strength of Greater Mel bourne was a menace. But tho per fecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed. The Metropolitan Elector ates have now 394,095 voters, the Country Constituencifs only 388,482 ; in other words Greater Melbourne boasts a majority of 5,613 vo...

Silo Filling. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 8 May 1914

Silo Filling. Too rapid filling of the silo is a mistake, as the fermentation or curing of the lower layers is apt to be chocked. The first day the silo should not be more than one third fillod. It should then be allowed to settle for 36 to 38 hours, and another layer added. For a a fair-sized silo aboutfourfillings are required. In a lofty over ground silo very little if any weighting is necessary, especially it the material has been well tramped down, but a covering ^f wot chaff or similar material is advisable. With stack ensilage, covering with some material and weighting to exclude the air is necessary. Whilo the overground silo is very munh <vim mo stack, and great care is necessary to build each layer up evenly and to firm it well. When the stack is finished it requires to be roofed well to throw off the rain. Except whore there is a good deal of natural herbage that can be saved at little cost the stack system is not preferable to the silo.
